Xbox Live Gold subscribers can now grab the first round of September Games with Gold titles, which are Forza Motorsports 5: Racing Game of the Year Edition and the Xbox 360 title Hydro Thunder Hurricane. The first game was a launch title for the Xbox back in November 2013, while the second one (also backward compatible on the Xbox One) is a boat racing video game from the developers of the popular Riptide GP series. You can find official descriptions, video trailers and download links for both games below.
The Forza Motorsport 5 Racing Game of the Year Edition includes the Top Gear Car Pack, including ten additional cars for you to collect, race, and customize, featuring the 2013 Holden #10 Holden Xbox Racing Team Commodore VF, 1966 Chaparral #66 Chaparral Cars 2E and the 2013 Audi RS4 Avant. Forza Motorsport 5 is your ultimate car fantasy, only possible on Xbox One. Featuring an entirely new graphics engine, 16-player multiplayer, cloud-powered gameplay, and hundreds of perfectly recreated cars, Forza Motorsport 5 is where dreams are driven.
This all-new sequel to the legendary arcade hit features amazing dynamic water physics, transformable rocket-powered boats, gorgeous visuals and over-the-top interactive environments. Single player games include Race and Championship, and two brand new modes: Ring Master and the explosive Gauntlet. Combine local 4-player split-screen and online multiplayer games with 8 players over Xbox LIVE.
These first Games with Gold titles for the month of September are pretty great if you’re a racing fan, and it’s a good time to play Forza Motorsports 5 ahead of the release of the seventh episode on October 3. Happy downloading!Further reading: Games with Gold, Video Games, Xbox 360, Xbox One
